Latest Check-Ins

We came here during the pandemia. The public place was closed. We really appreciated the nice arrounding and the quietness. At first, the owner asked 250q and finally, we paid 200q. The toilets are clean and it was pleasant to swim. We recommand this place.

A lovely spot right by the lake. I was worried about the noise as there was quite a lot of partying going on when I arrived on Saturday evening, but as the day visitors left it got quiet. It’s quite pricey - Q100 for a tent for one night - but I wasn’t in a position to bargain as there are no other places nearby and it was nearly sunset. I only managed to negotiate a free beer.
It’s a place available for big events so don’t be surprised if there’s an all night long party happening. It worked out reasonably well for me except for the cost, but I would definitely not count on this place or even the area. There’s barely anywhere to stay and if for instance this place is unavailable or unbearable you’ll be in trouble. Check in advance if heading this way.

We stayed here when we saw we wouldn’t made to the border in the daylight. We arrived under heavy rain by 6pm so we couldn’t negotiate much the price. They charged us 400q for the motorhome, and let us park just in front the lake, great to wake up by the morning with this view and silent. They had barbeques that we could use.
They are is beautiful and quite flat. There are some open showers (you can be in bathing suits to shower). The flush toilets were clean when we arrived, but no paper, we took our on, also no light in the toilet cabin), we washed our dishes by the large bathroom sink. They rented kayaks for 100q the hour. And we took the time in the morning to enjoy a breakfast by the deck and jumped from it. Water was great, also great pictures from there.

First they wanted 100Q per person, then 75Q. We decided to leave and had dinner for almost the same price at the Kaskadas place near the border.
Many dogs around too
